Removing Hay Mulch From Flower Bed

Anonymous added on March 11, 2014 | Answered

We planted flower bulbs last fall and covered the bed with hay. Snow has melted from this area and the bulbs are sprouting through the hay. Should I carefully remove the hay or let the plants sprout through the hay?

I see no harm in letting the bulbs simply continue to grow up through the hay, provided it is not too thick. Otherwise, you can gently spread it out thinner or remove altogether.
